Reddish brown clear with medium beige head. Sugar caramel and bread aroma. Nice sourness well balanced by sweet, making it to some extent fruitnlike. Bread notes. Lasting sweet-sour aftertaste. Marduk (7588) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAR 1, 2015
1,5L PET bottle (Maxima, Salacgriva). Very dark brown colour. Small size, beige head, stays. Sweet, bready, tiny bit of sourness in aroma. Rye bread, sweetish, lemon sourness in taste. Medium carbonation. Vells (1833) - Rīga, LATVIA - MAY 3, 2013
Clear deep ruby with thin off white head. Minimal lacing.
Aroma.. malty sugar, bread, not much of it.
Sweetish and quite sour. That sour makes difference from ilgezeem Porteris. Not in good meaning thou zenkis (834) - Ogre, LATVIA - FEB 8, 2013
Pours copper reddish with creamy small cap. Aroma of semisweet, sour malt, rye malt mostly - like rye bread. Taste is sweetish-sour, think cause of ascorbic acid, sugary aftertaste. Flavor overall is too sour to me but could be refreshing drink during hot time. Middle body, slick-watery mouthfeel.

1L bottle (Ilgezeem Market Stall, Riga)
Rich aroma, sweet and rye malty, but also mushroomy. Sour bite to the palate. Sweet, but fazzy carbonation too. Dark. Simple rye malty body, a touch sugary. Blurring the line between fizzy pop and traditional kvass. Lemony and buttery retronasals, some raisins, a little yeasty. Good refreshing kvass, even when relatively warm.
